This is a collection of music for folk dancing that has long been out of print. Most of it consists of 78RPM transcriptions. Many of the vinyl recordings are actually transcribed from older 78s. From the soulful Macedonian, happy-happy Croatian, to the furious Russian-Ukranian melodies this music makes wonderful listening, but most importantly it demands to be danced. The 78RPM recordings often have a vigor and life unsurpassed by modern recordings. This is because they could not edit them, and...

This Kazoomzoom.com collection focuses on ragtime, an American music style from more than 100 years ago, a long time before the invention of CDs and iPods. Back then, sound was recorded into things like wax, resin, paper and metal. The paper recordings were played by instrument machines. The most popular was called a player piano, and most of the songs here are recorded from player pianos. Ragtime's uplifting and whimsical style is perfect as a happy and inspiring backdrop for playtime. The...

This tune was recorded by Luke Jordan in 1927 as "Cocaine Blues" (not to be confused with "Cocaine Habit Blues" recorded by the Memphis Jug Band).

"Castle House Rag - One Step", performed by Europe's Society Orchestra, recorded "under the personal supervision of Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Castle" on February 10, 1914. James Reese Europe was an important musical figure in the ragtime era (his band was the first Black band to record commercially). Vernon and Irene Castle were early popularizers of social dancing to syncopated music. From the original 12" 78rpm disk.

Recorded on December 3, 1927 in Dallas, Texas. The title of this tune was a garbled translation of someone trying to decipher Johnson's singing, the title should have been "Motherless Children Have A Hard Time." Indeed, it is reputed that Johnson was blinded as a child by his stepmother in a fit of anger after she was discovered in bed with another man by Johnson's father, who then beat her.
